A LOOK BACK IN TIME

Chamber of Commerce History: 75 Years Ago…On Monday evening, Mayor A.L. Lott placed before a public meeting at the Town Hall his proposal to form a Chamber of Commerce in Gananoque. It met with unanimous support. It is envisioned that the Chamber could study and advise council on such matters as a swimming pool for children, the building of a new bridge across the Gananoque River, the securing of the best men as councillors and other matters as their object the welfare and advancement of the town. It is agreed there are obstacles to be overcome but enthusiasm is high and the spirit and dedication of those who attended the meeting will see it becomes a reality.February 9th Edition of the Gananoque Reporter
